in Philadelphia, PA
Three Nights of Live Music and Social Dancing.
Two Days of Classes.
One event you can’t miss.
Blues Muse is an event that is dedicated to partnership above all else. From our early years championing follower voice and creativity, we have grown to become the event to be at to hone your partnership skills, flex your creativity, and engage in deep learning about the techniques and theories around connection. Blues Muse actively values warmth, friendliness, geekery, and silliness. All these values feed our passionate love of blues dancing and the particular joys of leading and following.
This year, we’ve got some exciting changes in store that we hope will help you learn as much as you can about being an expressive dancer while committing to building a dance with your partner. Stay tuned for more info!
BLUES MUSE 2020
We've been watching the scene jam on solo practice challenges and long distance accountability on fundamentals, we want to give you the tools to jam on partnership concepts in a similar way. To facilitate that learning, we are sticking with intensives and electives! Classes at Muse will include a mixture of one and a half hour long leveled intensives and one hour long electives. The intensives will allow for deep dives into exciting topics, including expanding your understanding of your dance role and how to practice effectively. The electives will allow you to explore topics and learn with participants of all levels, a core value of Muse.
In addition to our fantastic classes we also love letting loose on the dance floor. That’s why Blues Muse 2020 will have three nights of dancing to fabulous live music. Similarly to past years, there will be two competitions at Blues Muse (plus THE BATTLE), because we want to find a balance between showcasing the hard work of our community members and kicking back for social dancing.
